A window that keeps what’s on the outside out, while maintaining occupant comfort on the inside is a valuable commodity. The AA™6400/6500/6600 Thermal Window delivers superior thermal and water performance and excellent condensation resistance while meeting challenges of northern climates. A fusion of beauty, strength and functionality, the AA™6400/6500/6600 Thermal Window enhances any application – new and retrofit construction – while delivering architectural aesthetic appeal and ease of installation.
The window accommodates 1" (25 mm) or 1-3/4" (44.5 mm) insulating glass units combined with a polyamide thermal break for enhanced thermal performance. The structural aspects of the product are also enhanced through the polyamide thermal break connecting the exterior portion of the frame to the interior portion. This technology permits composite action, thus achieving greater load resistance while still offering design flexibility. Additionally, the “top hat” accent feature of the AA™6500/6600 Thermal Window provides a deeper 5" and 6" frame for thicker wall construction and greater structural capability.
Superior thermal efficiency also makes the window a good choice for buildings seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification with the U.S. and Canadian Green Building Councils.
The high-performing 4" (101.6 mm) deep AA™6400 Thermal Window, 5" (127 mm) deep AA™6500 Thermal Window and 6" (152.4 mm) deep AA™6600 Thermal Window achieve a superb condensation index (I value) and thermal transmittance (U-factor). The advanced design provides the ability to interface with air and vapor barriers to ensure the continuity of the seal at the window perimeter.
Additionally, the AA™6400/6500/6600 Thermal Window has a pressure equalized cavity and a rain screen design that deters water infiltration.
Since the windows are made from aluminum, they will never rot, warp or buckle due to moisture and weather exposure. Because they attain outstanding condensation resistance, the window is ideal for healthcare and education applications where condensation and mold are significant concerns.
